He and I were great friends growing up. That's what happens when you're stuck in the woods for the majority of your childhood. Even though I left our grove for college and now we only see each other every 2 months or so, I would still be lost without my little brother. Just knowing that he is there to share music, make me laugh, go on a roadtrip with, or beat someone up, is enough for me. He's such an awesome little dude and I will always think of him as 12 years old (regardless of the fact that he now goes to college and has found a great girl for him).
Happy Birthday Gaber-roonie. I got your back. :)
